  1. I cooked this meal tonight for my family, and we absolutely loved it!!! I could not find the harissa sauce, so I used Cayenne pepper instead. I also used some garlic seasoning to season the salmon. Everything turned out great! My grandmother loved the mango salsa. I thought the mango salsa brought the dish together by having a sour sweet taste!!! This recipe is definitively a keeper!!
  2. We enjoyed this salmon for dinner tonight. I used prepared harissa sauce. I made no modifications other than that I was not able to rub both sides of the fish with the harissa as I could not get the skin off of the back of the fish until after it had already cooked. I liked the combination of cool (mango salsa) and spicy (harissa). This was quick to make for a weeknight meal. Thanks!
  3. Delicious! I couldn't find harissa so used creol sauce -- but otherwise made as directed. Delish! Made for ZWT6. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
  4. This is my kind of meal! And what a great one it is! :) I followed this exactly, and have to say, the mango salsa is outstanding, which melds exceptionally well with the salmon. I especially loved the harissa rubbed on the salmon, this would make me devour salmon 100% of the time. Great recipe, absolutely adored it! Made for ZWT 6 Zee Zesty!


This site used to be awesome. It was at the top of its game when it was called Recipezaar, but that was many years ago. The site was purchased by Scripps and belly-flopped into mediocrity. A few of the faithful members remained, hoping to wait out the storm of corporate nonsense. But alas, it never got better and just continued on its terminal path to nothingness. So most of the loyal members have vanished and made homes at better recipe sites.
